We have found a serious bug in Stata 12.  An update is available
and we recommend everyone update.  If you don't know how, just
type -update- at the Stata prompt.

The update fixes a memory mangement bug.  The bug was unlikely
to occur.  If it occured, it usually caused a crash.  It could,
however, cause data to be corrupted.  We had only four reports
(all involved crashes) and, prior to that, we had never observed
a single instance of the bug in extensive testing over a period
of one year.

If your dataset was below 32 MB on 64-bit computers, or 16 MB on
32-bit computers, the bug could not occur.
